    I think the best Shakespear is Much Ado About Nothing and Hamlet. :D

    Legolas - did you ever see the movie? I think it's Kenneth Branaugh (sp?) as Hamlet... I could be very wrong *prepares to hide* But I thought that was very well done :)

    I saw the one with Mel Gibson as Hamlet. Didn't like it either.

    I'm reading "Hamlet" too. It's not too bad so far. We had to watch part of the Mel Gibson version in class. I couldn't hear the dialogue very well, but I didn't really like it. By the way, was that Glen Close as the mother? I thought it was but I wasn't sure.

    Never even heard of the Mel Gibson version. The one I've seen is really good though! Watch it! And you'll be inspired to read it! :D

    Heh, I'm not buying it ! From the exposure I have had to Shakespere I have a firm belief that it all sucks.

    Finishing up the last 100 pages of The Great Hunt (Second Wheel of Time Book) and I also just finished reading Dune by Frank Herbert about 2 weeks ago. I think I'm going to re-read Unfinished Tales and then go on to The Dragon Reborn (Third Wheel of Time Book).

    I'm reading a book called 'Of Sound Mind'. It's about a teenager who is the only one of four in his family that can hear. The rest of his family is deaf. And it goes and explains what he feels, and it's really cool. I just started.

    I found some WOT books in a used book store. If I get bored I may check them out. From what everyone says they must be pretty good.
